Analysis of VCAs for eight urban communities in Africa
Between late 2013 and early 2014 the IFRC supported several African National Societies to conduct Vulnerability and Capacity Assessments (VCA) in urban communities:
  • Yaounde VI Subdivision, Yaounde, Cameroon
  • Arada Sub-city (Woreda 4 and Woreda 5), Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  • Tomber Mort and Akekoi, Abidjan, Ivory Coast
  • Lunga Lunga Informal Settlements, Nairobi, Kenya
  • Commune de Guinaw Rails Nord, Dakar, Senegal
  • Rufisque, Dakar, Senegal
  • Hananasifu and Kigogo Mkwajuni Communities/Streets, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
  • Dzivarasekwa and Hatcliffe, Harare North District, Harare, Zimbabwe
This report discusses these 8 VCA reports as a body, emphasizing their strengths and suggesting strategies for further strengthening the VCA approach for urban
engagement.
